Introduction
ACTi provides you a series of guides for your project from proposal stage to maintainese stage. They work as below [IP surveillance Prosposal Guide]: Making proposal to your customer [IP Surveillance Deployment Guide]: Fullfill your project from proposal to practical to your customer. [Tech Support and TroubleShooting Guide]: Find the root cause of your problem and solve it. This [IP Surveillance Proposal Guide] contains step by step procedure for you to fulfill your project. We start with “Select your architecture type” and then “Build up each building block” in the architecture you selected. To familiarize you with the analog imaging knowledge and the IT knowledge, we also provide you the “IP Surveillance 101” at the appendix. You can look through it to have a brief idea about IP Surveillance. In first part, “Select Architecture Type”, we will start to differentiate differentiate basic solution diagram for different applications. You can have the idea about what customer might want in his application and how it looks like. This Proposal guide will include solution proposals with channel 64 and below. For solution proposal will channel more than 64, please contact our sales representative for more information. In Second Part, “Diagram Customization”, it is not possible for the solution diagram to fit exactly what your customer need. Thus, we have to customize the diagram into your customer’s solution diagram, which is your proposal. We will not include everything in this guide. Please refer to 1. [IP Surveillance Proposal Guide] for how make a proposal to your customer. 2. [Tech Support and Troubleshooting guide] for how to define the problem, analyze the problem then solve the problem

we will provides you what functions to compare when looking at product selection guides. Step2: Select by Camera function After you select the camera type. you have to select the camera model by functions.Step1: Select by Camera type Please follow the flow chart to select your camera type. Thus. In this step. we recommend you to look at his chapter with a selection guide on 18 .

where the light is very bright in the day and the light is very dark in the night. Below is a checklist for you to select each camera. IP zoom camera. it must have waterproof. one is done via “Mechanical removable IR-Filter” and the other is done via “Digital processing only”. you have to buy a IP66 compliant housing when installed outdoor. Besure to select the camera with ‘Mechanical Removable IR-Filter” otherwise the image color will not be true during day time and the focus might shift when switching between day mode and night mode. Item Outdoor / Indoor Day/Night function Audio Vandal Proof WDR function Zoom capacity Rotation Speed Spec Remark A. The waterproof standard is called IP66. you have to check if its housing complies to IP66 standard. you need cameras with audio function. B. Audio If you need to hear to sound from the camera site. D. For cameras integrated into a housing (ex: Dome camera . For cameras not integrated into a housing (ex: Box camera). Speed dome camera.). you need cameras with Day/Night function otherwise you can’t see clear images at night. There are two types of Day/Night function. Outdoor / Indoor If you want to install a camera outdoor.hand. C. Vandal Proof 19 . Day/Night function If your camera is installed at a outdoor.

the more zoom capacity it has. WDR function If you want to install a camera at indoor shooting both indoor and outdoor objects. For cameras not integrated into a housing (ex: Box camera). Zoom capacity (Zoom camera. This problem can be solved by 1. it would be necessary to have vandalproof casing. Speed dome only) For zoom camera and speed dome camera.). Cameras With WDR function Cameras without WDR function might have darkened indoor images or over brightened outdoor images F. you have to buy a vandal proof housing. the more cover range and the more detailed images it can get. Buying a camera with WDR function. IP zoom camera. Because how detailed the image should be depends on different 20 . Shooting mainly indoor or mainly outdoor objects. we select by considering cover range first then how detailed the image should be. you might have a problem obtaining clear images of both indoor objects and outdoor objects at the same time. There are two types of zoom: Optical and digital. 2. Speed dome camera.If you want to install a camera at a place where it might be damaged. you have to check if its housing has vandal proof function. To select sufficient zoom ratio. E. For cameras integrated into a housing (ex: Dome camera . Please select by optical zoom only since digital zoom will decrease the image quality.

Please see below for how to select each accessory. 2-1. focal length. mounting. It’s good for you to try the camera first to see if the image quality meets your standard. Rotation Speed (Speed dome only) Rotation speed directly effect the how fast the speed dome can response to an event. Select camera accessory There are several types accessory required for each camera installation including lens. Auto/Manual Iris. Select lens (for Box camera only) This section is for box camera only since dome camera. Image Quality Image quality is another one thing important but you can’t find it in any datasheet or selection guide. below is a simple reference of how to select by cover range. Aperture and IR correct) Please fill in the Lens Key item Table first.

otherwise the focus of the image will fail. B. Note: Most cameras are C and CS compliant at the same time.Lens key item table Item For Normal camera or Day/Night camera Object distance 3~10M 10M and above Spec Remark Lens selection flow. A. C/CS Mount C/CS mount are different specs for lens to be mounted onto a camera. Thus. The mount standard of the camera and the lens should be the same . Auto/Manul Iris There are two ways (adjusting the iris and adjusting the electric shutter speed) for camera to adjust the incoming lighting strength to get the best image quality without either getting too bright images or getting too dark images. Adjusting the iris is always the better way because there might be some side effect 22 . you have to make sure the lens you buy is compatible to your camera.

Focal length Basically. focus length directly effect the lens’ viewing angle and viewing distance and it is always marked as “f” in lens spec. 23 . C. If you have a lens supporting auto iris function. we strongly recommend you to use auto-iris lens. Thus. The difference between auto iris and manual iris. the bigger viewing distance will be and the smalled viewing angle will be. Below is a reference for how the different focal length works when shooting at the same people at 10M away. Vari-focal lens have a range of “f” which means it can be adjusted to any “f” within the range onsite. The bigger the f is. it can make sure your camera performance through out a day. is that auto iris will adjust itself instantly according to the environment lighting status (controlled by the camera) while manual iris’s iris is fixed (normally people won’t change the camera setting all the time after installed) thus the camera has to use electric shutter to control the lighting strength.while changing the electric shutter speed.

The smaller the aperture is. IR correct (Day/Night camera only) If a camera has a Day/Night function which enables it to switch to B&E during night time. Please compare this spec with lenses with the same focal length only. usually a lens with higher focal length has bigger aperture.The selection of the focal length is based on two factors. then you have to select one factor to be considered first. For analog cameras + video servers. the more sensitive the lens is (because it allows more lights to pass through). Thus. we strong recommend you to use the IR correct lens with it. How big the area you wish this camera to cover (angle of view)? 2. Regardless the angle of view. which you can adjust onsite to ensure the best performance. Below is a mount/housing selection table of all our IP cameras. 2-2. How big you with the object to be seen on the monitor? Sometimes. the focus of the camera will shift when switching between day mode or night mode. E. you can’t have two factors satisfied at the same time. Aperture This spec is marked as “F” in lens spec. D. 1. 24 . please check the analog camera’s spec. we highly recommend you to buy Varfi-focal length. below is an selection based clear images to be seen from the monitor at a certain distance. Select mount/housing This section tells you how to select the right mount or housing for different applications. Because without an IR correct lens. Aperture is subject to Focal length.

the image will be completedly dark. Below are some key items to configure and how to configure. This problem happens often when at a scene containing objects with high lighting difference. the lighting difference between indoor objects and outdoor objects is huge. NOTE: You have to login the IP camera to view the image first. BLC (Backlight Compensation) Backlight compensation is to solve the backlighting problem. Auto Iris / Electric shutter (Box camera only) Be sure to switch to Auto Iris when using a box camera with an auto iris lens. C. A. only. Otherwise. no need for dome camera. That’s because sometimes you might get worse images after you turn the BLC on. speed dome. This section is for box camera (when connected to a RS-485 P/T bracket) and video server(when connected to a speed dome or a box camera with a P/T bracket). 5-1. Serial Connection E. 2-2-6. just adjust it when there’s a brightness issue. Appropriate settings are required for both parts to ensure the camera performance. (ex: shooting from indoor to outdoor. 28 . You can refer to camera’s hardware manual for more information about switching the settings. There’s no rule to adjust this setting. and adjust according to video displayed. Camera configuration The camera configuration includes two parts. B. DC level Switch this level to micro adjust the video overall brightness.4-5.) Whether to enable this function or not is subject to each case. Analog imaging configuration The configuration of the analog imaging are done by either switching the DIP-Switch at the camera side panel or by entering the camera’s OSD menu and setup. You have to adjust on-site and decide by on-site performance. analog imaging configuration and the web-configurator setting.

G. Please see below for how each setting means and how to adjust. please go through the setting below. But it has relatively strong functionality against backlighting problem. White Balance (Color rendering) White balance settings directly effect whether the color rendering is true or not. Example: In some Japan area. Whenever theirs is a problem. the TV standard is NTSC (frequency: 60times /sec) but local power frequency is 50times /sec. F. Only in such kind of cases. AWB (Auto White Balance) ATW (Auto Trace White Balance) PWB (Push White Balance) Manually Adjust (Manually set Red and Blue parameters) There’s no need to change the setting if the color rendering is bad. There are 4 types of white balance setting and each camera might not have them all. E. Flickerless (Mostly for Japan only) For special area where the TV standard frequency is different then the AC power frequency. You can try to turn it on when you have such kind of problem. WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) Wide Dynamic Range works the same as BLC. PTZ setting (for Zoom camera and speed dome only) Zoom camera and PTZ camera can be remote controlled by 29 .D. you will need to turn the Flickerless on.

Resolution & Bit rate & Frame rate These three items are dependent to each other. Streaming Type This section is to set whether you use TCP/IP or Multicast to stream to video for LAN port or WAN port.E-1. We recommend you to use TCP/IP as your streaming type since the multicast might cause the network to fail without appropriate network setting (which requires some IT background). E-2. Higher bit rate means better image quality but you can also lower 36 .

then refer to the flow to select the right bit rate.the frame rate to get good image quality in low big rate. It directly effect the network bandwidth. resolution combination for each bit rate. storage size and the image quality (together 37 . Please refer to the description below for each setting. -Bit rate: This seting is to select the size of the streaming transferred by this device.

Normally. But if you might eed to lower the frame rate if your bit rate is not enough for 30fps. NTSC Resolution D1 (720x480) CIF (360x240) QCIF (180x120) PAL Resolution D1 (720x576) CIF (360x288) QCIF (180x144) -Frame rate: This setting directly effect how many frame rates you can get per second. E-3. the better resolution it can provide. 38 . Frame integration . Below is a picture indicating the interlacing problem. -Resolution: This is to select how big your image is. Thus.This setting is for the interlacing problem which happens when shooting an high speed moving object. The bigger the image is. we always set our bit rate according to the bandwidth and the storage size first. then we adjust the resolution and the frame rate for the video quality.with resolution and frame rate). we would recommend you to use 30fps because it won’t miss a thing.

Interlacing problem We strongly recommend you to use the “Deinterlace-Blending” if your are not sure what to use. If you are shooting a place where images are all moving very fast, you confront servious interlancing problem, then you can try to change it into “Deinterlace Motion”. NOTE: Deinterlace-blending deliver better images of static items while deinterlace-motion sacrifice some resolution to compensate for the motion. E-4. Serial port baud rate -This setting is important during the PTZ setting. Please refer to the table below for how to set it. Application Video Server + PTZ camera IP camera IP dome camera IP speed dome How to set Serial baud baud rate: This baud rate should be the same with the PTZ camera’s baud rate rate setting No use No use This baud rate should be the same with the IP speed dome camera’s 39

hardware baud rate rate setting. IP zoom camera This baud rate should be the same with the IP zoom camera’s hardware baud rate rate setting.

E-5. Network port setting -This section lets you set the network port for the network connection. This setting is important otherwise the system will fail (no images, PTZ don’t work or..). Please refer to support packge TS-00009 for how to set up http://www.acti.com/support/support_package.asp F. Video Adjust PTZ camera always move from one prest to another preset. There’s no need to adjust this parameter unless you have these problems PAL NTSC Hue 50 Hue 50 Brightness 55 Brightness 55 Saturation 85 Saturation 85 Contrast 55 Contrast 55 G. Date Setting This sections lets you know how to the set the time of the IP camera. Since the IP camera embeds the timecode within the streaming, it is important to set the time of the IP camera right. We recommend you to use SNTP/NTP because it can make sure all the IP camera are synchronized to the same time. Please refer to support packge TS-00006 for how to set up http://www.acti.com/support/support_package.asp The synchronize time means the time interval for the IP camera to sync time with the SNTP/NTP server, we recommend you to set as 5mins in normal conditions. If you are not sure about the SNTP / NTP, please select “Set Manually” and manually input the time.

Adjusting the iris is always the better way because there might be some side effect 86 . Note: Most cameras are C and CS compliant at the same time.Lens key item table Item For Normal camera or Day/Night camera Object distance 3~10M 10M and above Spec Remark Lens selection flow. C/CS Mount C/CS mount are different specs for lens to be mounted onto a camera. Auto/Manul Iris There are two ways (adjusting the iris and adjusting the electric shutter speed) for camera to adjust the incoming lighting strength to get the best image quality without either getting too bright images or getting too dark images.

it can make sure your camera performance through out a day. The bigger the f is. we strongly recommend you to use auto-iris lens. Focal length Basically. I.while changing the electric shutter speed. Below is a reference for how the different focal length works when shooting at the same people at 10M away. the bigger viewing distance will be and the smalled viewing angle will be. is that auto iris will adjust itself instantly according to the environment lighting status (controlled by the camera) while manual iris’s iris is fixed (normally people won’t change the camera setting all the time after installed) thus the camera has to use electric shutter to control the lighting strength. If you have a lens supporting auto iris function. The difference between auto iris and manual iris. Vari-focal lens have a range of “f” which means it can be adjusted to any “f” within the range onsite. Thus. 87 . focus length directly effect the lens’ viewing angle and viewing distance and it is always marked as “f” in lens spec.

please check the analog camera’s spec. Because without an IR correct lens. The smaller the aperture is. the more sensitive the lens is (because it allows more lights to pass through).The selection of the focal length is based on two factors. For analog cameras + video servers. Aperture This spec is marked as “F” in lens spec. you can’t have two factors satisfied at the same time. How big you with the object to be seen on the monitor? Sometimes. IR correct (Day/Night camera only) If a camera has a Day/Night function which enables it to switch to B&E during night time. Please compare this spec with lenses with the same focal length only. Aperture is subject to Focal length. we strong recommend you to use the IR correct lens with it. J. which you can adjust onsite to ensure the best performance. we highly recommend you to buy Varfi-focal length. then you have to select one factor to be considered first. the focus of the camera will shift when switching between day mode or night mode. K. 2-2. Select mount/housing This section tells you how to select the right mount or housing for different applications. usually a lens with higher focal length has bigger aperture. Regardless the angle of view. 1. below is an selection based clear images to be seen from the monitor at a certain distance. How big the area you wish this camera to cover (angle of view)? 2. 88 .

Data transmission block: In this block. there are four building blocks of the video surveillance solution including video generation. audio. The response action could be triggered upon an event and leaves a record for future event annalistic. device control and user-defined informations. Each one of the security surveillance system are focusing on different aspects and each of the security surveillance system is somehow integrated with other systems in different applications. The main difference between IP Surveillance Solution and Analog Surveillance Solution is that IP Surveillance Solution uses network as the backbone to transporting data instead of using point-to-point coxial cabling. guards or administrator can view image from the video generation block and determine if there’s an event happening and the respective response actions. video recording and video playback. The video surveillance system is focusing on surveillance by video that is we secure our property by video monitoring. data is transferred between the video generation block and the video monitoring block or the video management block. IP Surveillance data includes video.Chapter 1 – Introduction to IP surveillance solution 1-1 What is IP Surveillance Solution IP Surveillance Solution belongs to the video surveillance system and it contains digitalized video & audio stream generation. The data contains the video/audio stream. stream transfer via network (LAN/WAN/Internet). Video monitoring block: In this block.

Analog CCTV system + DVR PICTURE: Video generation block: Analog camera that generate analog video via coaxial output. the cabling cost is huge and increase the difficulties to maintain the system. RS-485 cables to transfer the control signals to the camera or to a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) and alarm-in/alarm-out cables to transfer the signals from sensor to a DVR or from a DVR to a buzzer. Sometimes. the cabling cost is huge and increase the difficulties to maintain the system. That is. Video Management block: The management is done via a DVR (Digital 6 . Video monitoring block: Use analog TV to view the images. Because there’s are so many cables to install and maintain. this system uses a quad/multiplexer with a VCR to increase its recording capacity camera number but this architecture will sacrifice either the image resolution or the image frame rate which decrease its security performance. security operators have to replace the cassette every 8 hours and the cassette storage management requires a huge space a lot of human power and good storage environment (to prevent the video quality of the images stored in the cassette from worsening. RS-485 cables to transfer the control signals to the camera or to a VCR (Video Cassete Recorder) and alarm-in/alarm-out cables to transfer the signals from sensor to a VCR or from a VCR to a buzzer. There are coaxial cables to transfer the analog video. Video Management block: The management is done via a VCR (Video Cassete Recorder). Because there’s are so many cables to install and maintain. The VCR can record one camera’s video of full frame at a maximum of 8 hours. Data transmission block: All the data from camera and sensor to DVR is transferred via directly point-to-point cabling.1-3-1. The video playback of a VCR is through manual Forwarding and Rewinding and the video is analized by operators. Data transmission block: All the data from camera and sensor to VCR is transferred via directly point-to-point cabling. Video monitoring block: Use analog TV to view the images. Analog CCTV system + VCR PICTURE: Video generation block: Analog camera that generate analog video via coaxial output. . . 1-3-2. This playback mechanism will cost operators a lot of time when searching video for a specified time or event. There are coaxial cables to transfer the analog video.

The DVR digitalize the video and compress the digtal video and store the compression digital video. event and some advanced searching in addition to VCR’s manual Forwarding and rewinding. The DVR’s video inputs are typically 4. Because there’s are so many cables to install and maintain. 1. Use analog TV to view the images 2. as long as the HD is not broken. Data transmission block: All the data from camera and sensor to DVR is transferred via directly point-to-point cabling. It can search video by time.. RS-485 cables to transfer the control signals to the camera or to a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) and alarm-in/alarm-out cables to transfer the signals from sensor to a DVR or from a DVR to a buzzer. 1-3-4. The video playback of a DVR is more advanced than VCR. 1-3-3. Analog CCTV system + networking DVR PICTURE: Video generation block: Analog camera that generate analog video via coaxial output. a DVR can record a camera’s video of full frame for some days. 9. This playback mechanism saves enormous time of the operators when searching for a specified time or event. This means the operator doesn’t need to replace the cassette constantly. Video Management block: The networking DVR enables a remote PC to view the live preview or playback images in additional to all other features of a conventional DVR.Video Recorder). . the images quality stays the same unlike images stored in cassettes. The images could be live preview or recorded images. the cabling cost is huge and increase the difficulties to maintain the system. IP Surveillance system + PC Servers 7 . The PC can be anywhere with an network connection to the DVR. Use a PC to access the DVR and view the images. Because the compressed data is small and the HD’s space increases significantly these years. Video monitoring block: There’s are two ways to monitoring the video. All the data from DVR to a Client PC is via IP-based network (LAN/WAN/Internet). There are coaxial cables to transfer the analog video. For conventional DVR introduction.. please go to 1-3-2 Analog CCTV system + DVR. This greatly enhance the video surveillance system’s functionality and flexibility. Besides. or 16 which means the quad and multiplexer functionality is built-in.

4. Both reasons save a lot cost. you just need to connect the IP camera to the nearest network switch instead of adding a new cable all the way from the control room to the camera. IP surveillance system greatly enhance the system performance. the power and the network signal can be transferred via one network cable. 4. The length of cables 3. Use an analog camera + video server 2. the video is digitalized and compressed. but this special wireless has relative small transmission distance (less than 10M according to practical using) and the image quality is bad even the wireless distance is small. sometimes. The number of cables 2. 3. when adding a new camera. Use an IP camera Either way. the network cross-nation is pre-built. The locations of the cameras: In IP surveillance system. There’s one special wireless (not the wireless we are talking about everyday) for analog system. But in analog surveillance system. the network infrastructure is pre-built in the building. PoE connection: When using PoE connection. With wireless connection. PoE connection 1.PICTURE: Video generation block: There’s are two ways to generate the video. Transmission based on IP-based network have advantages over analog cabling including 1. The location of the camera. The number of cables: In IP Surveillance system. 1. Besides. 2. all the data is digitalized and can be transferred via wireless network and delivers the same image quality. because each video input requires a video cable from camera to the control room. Data transmission block: All the data from video server/IP camera to the PC servers is transferred via IP-based network (LAN/WAN/Internet). it is possible for a control room at United Kindom to view cameras at USA or at China. multiple video input can share one network cable unlike the analog system cabling where each video input requires one coaxial cable. the camera can be installed at places where cabling is difficult or very costy. Also. The length of cables: In IP surveillance system. you can’t view a camera cross county or cross country Ex: view a camera in USA from China. the cabling cost is significantly small. Which 8 .

Video Management block: The management is done via any PC server anywhere with a network connection to the video sever/IP cameras. Video monitoring block: Use a PC to access the video server and view the images.saves a lot of cabling cost. 9 . There PC servers can deliver all the functionality a networking DVR has.

That’s because WAN port supports every functionality LAN port supports and WAN port have the connectivity via Internet or WAN while LAN port can’t.

B. Connection within a LAN: (Use WAN port or LAN port).
If all the network connection is within the same local network segment, you can use either LAN port or WAN port. NOTE: In this system, you will find a. No ADSL modem or Cable modem or router. b. Every device is within the same network segment (with IP address of 192.168.1.xxx, xxx could be any number between 1~255)

IP address: 192.168.1.1

IP address: 192.168.1.2

IP address: 192.168.1.3

[Support Package]
C. Connection via routers: (Use WAN port)
If your connection is not just within the LAN but come across routers, please use WAN port. That’s because only WAN port has the network connectivity via routers. NOTE: In this system, you will find a. Routers. b. Every device could be at different network segment

IP address: 192.168.1.1

IP address: 192.168.1.2

IP address: 65.71.12.3 IP address: 192.168.1.3

D. Connection via Internet: (Use WAN port)
If your connection is not just within the LAN but come across internets, please use WAN port. That’s because only WAN port has the network connectivity via routers. NOTE: In this system, you will find a. Routers, ADSL or Cable modem b. Every device could be at different network segment

IP address: 192.168.1.1

IP address: 192.168.1.2

IP address: 65.71.12.3 IP address: 192.168.1.3

[Support Package]
E. Special Case: (Use WAN and LAN port)
For some special cases, you might need to use WAN and LAN port at the same time. In this kind of cases, you can regard WAN and LAN separately according to your system (that’s because LAN port and WAN port works independently).

In this case, the IP camera uses WAN port to connect to the internet via an ADSL modem for remote client to preview. The IP camera also sends streaming to local PC for local storage and monitoring.
